for those, who don't read individual threads:

Quote:
The Riverside Financial District (a.k.a Maintor Frankfurt) is officially starting on august 1.
  • it will take 6 months to demolish all buildings (all but a small historical villa and the skeleton of an old office midrise, which will be redeveloped)
  • shortly after demolition starts, the first phase of the development will start: the redevelopment of a 50s office midrise (46m, 12 floors) into a new office building called Primus, which after completion will be occupied by the developer itself (DIC)
  • the next phase (starting 2012) is the construction of two more office buildings, the Panorama (64m, 16 floors) and the Porta (70m, 19 floors)
  • the residential part (200 apartments) will follow with the Patio and Palazzi buildings
  • Winx, the tallest tower, will follow in 2013
  • the date of completion for the whole project is sometime in 2015
  • 580 million euros will be invested
  • 3,500 people will live and work here

parts of the old town will be reconstructed, including buildings like these.

the area plan:


http://stadtplanungsamt-frankfurt.de

the area will be a mix though of genuine reconstructions and "historicized" new buildings, which might look as these mediocre examples.


http://www.baunetz.de


http://www.fr-online.de


however, the area wont reach the historic class it once had before la guerre:

(look at some of the pictures here):
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1057411
Is there a thread for this? I like the look of those historicist (if you can call them that) buildings.

We have a German thread on Frankfurt's old town reconstruction: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1348259


I'll open an international one in the European Classic Architecture forum soon, as things get more clear.

Would these reconstructions be used as commercial space?

I somehow don't see them as residential but I don't see how they can fill them all up.

It will be a mixture of quite everything, you'll have apartments, offices, small hotels/guesthouses, shops, restaurants etc. there. So it's going to be a typical old town structure. It won't be hard to fill them, demand is huge in central Frankfurt.

another residential tower

some news:

plans for another new residential tower emerged, this time in sachsenhausen
17 floors
10 retail units at the bottom
location: stresemann allee 61
the site is currently occupied by a 15 floor office building, which will be demolished (or partly demolished, depending on the version)

Great news. Any information on the developer or even some graphical support (renders/models/drawings) for this?
Where did you get it from?

the developer is the owner of the office tower. no renderings have been published yet. this project, among 70+ other points, will be discussed at a local council meeting tomorrow. hopefully more information will be available then.

Fantastic news. In particular because its a transformation of office space to residential.

new tower at the former police hq

according to this article in the immobilienzeitung the state of hessen has finally found an investor for the site of the former police headquarters. if all goes according to plan, construction of a 145m tall tower could follow. apparently the boom at the adjacent europaviertel area (tower 185, skyline plaza and others) has synergistic effects on developments in the area. a design competion will be held. the preliminary design of jo.franzke architects can be seen in the article.

The first proposed design of the tower at the Police HQ definitely is worth to be shown here
